About suPHP

SuPHP Or PHPSuExec as most people call is a module that increases the
security of the server and executes PHP files under the owner of the file
instead of the Apache user i.e. nobody. The advantages of having suPHP are:

1. Files and Directories those need 777 permissions to write into will no
longer need those permissions and will result in an “Internal Server Error”,
The maximum permissions a directory or a file (writable) will need is 755.
For these we will change all your current 777 permission folder to 755 and
644 for any of your files.

2. The php_value or php_flag configured will no longer work for .htaccess,
you are required to inform us to any kind of modification due to php module,
for example when u need register_globals on or off, upload_limit, memory
limit by contacting us via email to support@mesrahosting.net, If they are
placed in .htaccess it will result in an “Internal Server Error”.

3. All the files and directories uploaded via the browser will have the
ownership of the user they are uploaded under instead of ‘nobody’.

4. You will be able to edit/remove the files which are uploaded via the
browser or Ftp. Without suPHP you will facing difficulties to do so.

If you have any problems on loading the website and your using PHP,
please contact us by providing us the full url for your applications and the
steps to reproduce the errors in order for our technical support to
troubleshooting your issue.
